Gowran Park Golf Course

In 2001, Gowran Park, in County Kilkenny developed this unique 18 hole golf course to compliment its renowned race meetings. The course meanders in and around 130 acres with 5 holes within the racecourse boundary and the remainder in the mature woodland and lake settings of the Annaly Estate.

With the magnificent backdrop of the Blackstairs Mountains this par 71, 18 hole golf course provides an excellent test for the low handicap golfer whilst also being very enjoyable for the middle to high handicappers.
